With so little safety in the world it can be a daunting task to do anything even something as simple as getting in and out of your bathtub. Who wants to slip and fall?

From twelve inches to as long as three to six feet these things are so handy when you are trying to get out of the bathtub. If you dont need them in your tub mounting them to the wall next to the toilet or sink can help you rise from anywhere in the restroom.
An old saying "Better safe than sorry" can be rightfully applied when you do up your bathroom and use equipment that will keep you out of harms way. When you plan the layout of your bathroom try to design a good combination of textured floor tiles grab bars bath lifts and shower seats. You can position the grab bars in such a way that the dangers are eliminated. For instance you can place one grab bar outside the shower area or bathtub to aid your family member to undress before stepping into the tub or shower. This will help if water is retained on the slippery floor or if there is any type of condensation. If you provide bathroom grab bars on either sides of the bathtub or shower at an angle it can help them use the support when removing their clothing so that they do not slip and fall.
